Local Politics Revisited

A while back, I noted that I had not yet made up my mind about the Delanco township committee race. Well, I made up my mind when the Republican candidate called me and asked for my support. I even agreed to put up a sign in the yard, a first for the four years we've lived here.

Today, as my wife was picking up the kids from school, she was confronted by one of my occasional readers over our choice of candidates. This woman loudly questioned our choice and asked why my wife wouldn't vote for an honest Democrat. She responded that all politics is essentially local, and if she started voting Democrat at this level, she might find herself repeating that mistake at the state and national level.

You go, girl!
